How does PestConnect work

Our PestConnect system uses digital connected devices to monitor for, and immediately control, any rodents that find their way into your premises.

PestConnect ensures that technicians only visit your workplace when absolutely necessary, reducing any disruption to your business.

Digital pest control & non-toxic options

At Rentokil we have taken the ‘age old’ pest problems faced by our customers from beverage and food processing, pharmaceuticals and healthcare to hospitality, retail and office environments and utilised technology to pioneer digital pest control solutions that benefit our business customers in today's modern environment, maintaining effective rodent control whilst reducing the impact of rodenticide on wildlife in the UK.

More stringent legislation and regulations around food safety, health & safety, and increasing awareness of the potential environmental impact of overuse of pesticides is driving our innovation in highly targeted interior rodent control such as Internal Dual AutoGate Connect and effective non-toxic alternatives like Rat Riddance Connect for pest control.

PestConnect offers internal and external digital pest control solutions. Rat Riddance Connect is a highly effective rat snap trap that meets regulatory compliance for non-toxic rat control in sensitive areas. Whilst RADAR Connect is an award winning, bait free, effective mouse trap that swiftly eliminates and hygienically contains mice, reducing the risks of contamination. Both of these effective solutions have been developed for sensitive locations where the use of bait is not an option for our customers.

All the information generated by these connected devices is available 24/7 within the myRentokil portal, offering insights into pest history and recommendation status for your premises, providing vital information to help proactively protect your business from the harmful effects of pests.

Frequently Asked Questions about PestConnect


  • Will PestConnect interfere with my existing IT system?

    No - PestConnect uses a mobile network to transmit information to our secure cloud based servers; we don't connect to the customer WiFI. In addition, the devices use a unique UHF signal to communicate with the onsite control panel, reducing the risk of signal interference or disruption. The system is designed to work independently of all onsite IT systems, and will not compromise or interefere with any machinery or wireless networks.

     


  • How much does PestConnect cost?

    The cost of a PestConnect system will vary, depending on the size of the area that needs monitoring and protecting and the subsequent number of devices that need to be installed to achieve that. However the cost is not much different to a 'standard' pest control contract. We can provide a site survey to give you a bespoke quotation.

     


  • Is PestConnect a suitable solution?

    Yes - internal PestConnect system, uses RadarConnect and non-toxic RatRiddance Connect devices, installed withinin your premises. Rodenticide is required in external rodent bait stations, but this is seperated from the outside environment by the deployment of intelligent Dual AutoGate Connect units. These devices only open when a rodent pest is present then closes shortly after, to minimise the impact on UK wildlife and the environment. The system is sustainable and compliant with all UK legislation and regulations, including the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU).

     

     


  • What connected devices will you use / how many will I need?

    We use a range of suitable connected devices to monitor for and control rodents both internally and externally. We will provide a comprehensive and bespoke business survey to ascertain the most appropriate type and number of devices that your site will require.


  • How long does PestConnect take to install?

    PestConnect installation time will vary depending on the size of the premises and can be completed in as little as an hour for smaller businesses.

How are we Reducing the Environmental impact of Rodenticide

CRRU has collated evidence* that a proportion of professional rodenticide used externally to control rat pests is eaten by non-target species. This can lead to secondary and tertiary poisoning of other non-target species in the UK, such as predatory birds like buzzards and kestrels. Slugs and snails can also eat this poison, and they in turn are consumed by song birds like thrushes and blackbirds. Rentokil can reduce the use of rodenticide with the use of our innovative PestConnect technology that allows us to comply fully with more stringent regulations, whilst maintaining a highly effective pest control programme that has a greatly diminished environmental impact.

This is something we take very seriously as a pest control industry leading business, and are continually developing and improving our professional solutions to control rats and mice, whilst lessening our impact on the environment to help reduce the effects of rodenticide on UK wildlife. An example of this is our Dual AutoGate Connect, which places a protective barrier between the bait and the external environment; this 'smart' gate will only open during an active infestation and can only be triggered by specific rodents, which means we can control mice and rats immediately, whilst minimising the risk of exposure to other wildlife and non-target species.

Recent changes to the CRRU code of best practise states that permanent baiting internally can only be carried out if there are 'frequent' follow up checks to the premises. However, frequent visits are not always appropriate for some of our customers, who wish to avoid disruption to their premises; we therefore have developed appropriate solutions such as bait free RADAR Connect and non-toxic Rat Riddance Connect to protect them against potential internal infestations. These PestConnect solutions can help provide our customers with the peace of mind that they have 24/7 monitoring without the disruption, with immediate and highly targeted treatment.
